Keys to the Game
1. Bernier’s Back, All Right?
Before you get too excited, the question mark there is because we don’t know for sure if he’ll be back tonight. We’ve been told he should be available for tonight’s game, so that’s promising.
2. Win in Regulation
Bad things can happen after 60 minutes of play. The easiest way to avoid that is to win before then!
3. Take advantage of the Nashville PK
I’m leaving this one the same as last time. It’s still true.
